Hyatt Regency LAX Opens 'Self-Contained' Conference Center

Small and medium-sized meetings are cleared for takeoff at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), according to the Hyatt Regency LAX, which last month opened its much-anticipated new Hyatt Regency Conference Center.

The only facility of its kind in the LAX-adjacent area, the new conference center has more than 10,000 square feet of flexible meeting space, including several boardrooms and breakout rooms for groups as small as 10 to 20 attendees, or as large as 150 attendees.

Benefits of the new facility include all-day dining from Executive Chef Charles Fusco; full- and half-day CMP pricing; state-of-the-art technology, including cutting-edge projector screens, conference tables with power outlets, and what the hotel says is the market's fastest high-speed wireless Internet; and, of course, the hotel's location, which is steps from LAX's Terminal 1 and adjacent to a large self-parking garage.

The conference center's biggest selling point, however, is the fact that it's self-contained on the hotel's ground floor, giving groups convenience and privacy that's lacking in hotels with more distributed meeting space.

"Hyatt Regency LAX is fast becoming a favorite destination for upscale corporate meetings due to our convenient location, unparalleled guest service standards, and complete meeting packages," said Jeff Rostek, the hotel's managing director. "We designed and built the self-contained Hyatt Regency Conference Center to cater to the growing trend of small to medium-sized groups."

Although the new conference center caters to small and medium-sized groups, the hotel also can host large groups: Along with the new facility, it has 25 existing meeting rooms and a 14,000-square-foot ballroom, bringing its total meeting space to 50,000 square feet.
